Cork County Council has announced the return of FrameWorks, a classroom-based education programme aimed at primary school children in Cork County. The programme will provide four schools with the opportunity to become temporary custodians of the Council’s County Art Collection, engaging in a managed programme facilitated by a professional artist.
Cork County Council has a substantial collection of visual art. The civic collection includes works in various media including painting, drawing, print, photography, video and small-scale three-dimensional work created by emerging and established artists, many of whom are living and working in Cork County.
Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Danny Collins, commented on the programme, saying, “This is an excellent opportunity for young people in Cork County to engage with contemporary visual art and to explore their own creativity in the classroom. The Council’s Art Collection is a valuable asset, and we are delighted to be able to make it available to schools through this programme. We look forward to seeing the collaborative artworks created by participating schools presented as part of next year’s Cruinniú na nÓg celebrations.”
